What does winter mean for your pool?

Tuesday December 22nd was the shortest day of the year, and marks the beginning of the winter season for 2015- but what does that mean for your pool?

While Florida is deemed the “sunshine state,” the winter months issue shorter days and fewer hours of sunlight.

That said, Solar Pool Heating becomes obsolete in the winter months. The days are too short to collect enough solar energy to get your heater performing up to standard. So through the winter months, Solar Pool heating needs to be backed-up with a conventional system in order to maintain desirable pool temperatures. Months of convention system use is costly and burns fossil fuels, sacrificing energy efficiency and the winter swimming poolintegrity promised with solar.

GeoThermal systems are not affected by outdoor air temperatures, nor do hours of viable sunlight limit their efficiency. Instead, GeoThermal utilizes Florida’s underground aquifers, which maintain a consistent temperature year-round.

GeoThermal will perform through the winter season, even on the shortest day of the year, just as well as it performs in the summer months. GeoThermal is the ONLY pool heating method that does not need a backup in order to maintain desired pool temperatures. It is an independent system that delivers the energy efficiency, integrity and performance Florida pool owners are looking for.

Florida will be experiencing high tourism through this holiday season, don’t be caught without a viable pool simply because the water is too cool for comfort.

Solar Energy Myths Debunked

Commercial Solar Pool HeatingSolar is often regarded as the top green technology for heating and cooling pools. When considering what system to install for your pool heating needs, it is crucial to consider all factors of Solar.

Solar Panels for pool heating have limited effectiveness in the winter months when days are shorter and the sun is lower in the sky. The cold air tends to cool the water in the solar panels, causing the pool to lose its heat. Solar has a lower heat output, and often needs a conventional system as a backup heat source.
Unlike Solar, GeoThermal does not need a backup source -making it a more complete model of energy-efficiency.
Solar pool heating systems require a large physical installation footprint. GeoThermal units can be installed indoors and stacked, so it is possible to only allocate a small footprint for installation.

You can invest in the future of your pool by choosing the most complete model for energy efficient pool heating – GeoThermal.
